Back at STLV in August, our friends at Eaglemoss showed off their first Star Trek: Discovery prototype ship models — the Walker-class USS Shenzhou and Crossfield-class USS Discovery — after announcing the launch of their latest Star Trek ship subscription plan.
Now, Eaglemoss has officially revealed the details for the new Discovery model subscription, and shared even more visuals of the upcoming ships headed to fans in 2018.
STAR TREK: DISCOVERY
THE OFFICIAL STARSHIPS COLLECTION
Star Trek returns 50 years after first premiering with Star Trek: Discovery, the new series from CBS featuring new characters, new missions, but most importantly: new starships!
Eaglemoss is proud to present Star Trek: Discovery Starships, a unique collection of die-cast models featuring brand new ship concepts and designs from CBS’s Star Trek: Discovery. Each ship in the Discovery collection has gone through extensive reference study and reproduced under the supervision of Star Trek; expert Ben Robinson for accuracy and detail.
Be the first to own the ships from Discovery and enjoy every stunning edition from the series delivered right to your door. With limited quantities coming in early 2018, guarantee your subscription by reserving the first ship, the U.S.S. Shenzhou NCC-1227 for only $9.95!
The U.S.S. Shenzhou NCC-1227 is scheduled to ship on or before January 31, 2018. Thereafter, you will receive 1 Star Trek: Discovery Starship per month. Subscribers enjoy an exclusive discounted price of $45 per ship with free shipping and handling –a 20% discount from the regular SRP of $55.
These Star Trek Discovery Starships will not be available through other Eaglemoss subscriptions.
In addition to the subscription plan, the USS Shenzhou model can also be preordered as a standalone purchase in the US shop for $54.95.
The higher price point on the Discovery collection is due to the larger scale: ships will be larger than the standard bi-monthly standard Official Starships subscription (measuring an estimated 20-25cm / about 8-10 inches), with a single monthly release instead instead of two smaller ones.
The price point falls in the same general range as Eaglemoss’ current “special edition” releases. Also revealed are some previews of the digital models being used for reference in the model starship construction.
As an additional note, the FAQ page on the Eaglemoss site indicates that the creative team has “20 ships planned in this collection,” so if you’re signing up, you’re going to need some more shelf space!
Program manager Ben Robinson released a large preview image of the USS Discovery model on Twitter this past Friday:
We’ll bring you our review of these new models as soon as they’re released!
